Not endorsing any copyright violations here, but I'm sharing my insights from yesterday when I tried to create a PDF of a non-mobile enabled resource, how to increase the limit of the 100 pages restriction.

My idea was to fit more content onto the pages, so that even when the 100 pages limit persists, you can still export a larger portion of the resource.

1. Reduce the page margins. Reducing from normal to small allows about 20% more content on a page, so what used to be 120 pages, now fits on 100 pages.

2. Export the resource in two columns. That allows about 10% more content (depending on the number of images and page breaks it might be a bit more or less), so we're at about 132 pages, and the resulting document is still okay to read on medium size screens.

3. This step doubles the amount of content you can fit on 100 pages, however, that goes at cost of comfortably reading it on small and medium size screens. Export to A3 instead of A4, and set the number of columns to 3. You can now fit about 264 pages onto 100 pages!! I have no 10 inch device to test whether it's still possible to read, but on a 14 inch screen it looks good. So it might or might not be good on an iPad screen...

I'd like to add #4.

4. Before hitting print/export reduce the font size to the lowest setting. When I left it on normal w/ .5' margins on 11X17 it exported Gen 1:1-Lev 17:14 to Word (from the NKJV Bible). When I reduced the size to the lowest setting it exported Gen 1:1-Judges 13:5. The font sizes come through normally when exported.

Excellent. Combining #1 to #4 I can export Genesis to 2 Samuel on 98 pages!!

That document is entirely useless for mobile use though Big Smile

Here is #5 Smile

I have run into this issue in the past, and recently one of the Logos help documents. This is what I do to get beyond the 100 page limit (and this is done for personal use only):

1. Select and copy a good chunk of the document.

2. Paste into Word of another word processor.

3. Select the next (or remaining) chunk of the document.

4. Paste into Word.

5. Continue steps 1 to 4 until you have as much of the document as you desire.

It can be a bit tedious, but it is effective. At least until the 100 page limit is removed and it can be assumed that all will follow Biblical principles. Smile

but if you export it to word and then change the word doc page setting to what you want you can save that as a Pdf. You can also export it to word, hit Cctrl + END to go to the end of the document, delete the last incomplete page and export the new range again, next time exporting to the current word doc rather than the last. I also place my curser on the chapter heading, select "select simular formating" and select the heading one style. Now you can easily add a TOC to you document n
